Hot Cross Madeleines-4

Hot Cross Madeleines

April 15, 2017 | 4 comments

The best part about having learned French for 4 years is being able to read authentic French recipes + being able to get recipes from actual french people. Being small and adorable (and shell shaped!), madeleines are one of my favorite french desserts so I naturally had to search up an authentic French recipe for…

Orange Frangipane Cake-1

Orange Cake with Almond Crumble

April 8, 2017 | 3 comments

The Beauty and the Beast was probably my first exposure to pop culture since like ever. Usually, conversations with me usually consist of: Have you heard “Hamilton”? I love (insert song) so much! Hamilton? As in the person who died in the duel with Burr? The electoral college and national bank guy?” *No, the album…

Matcha Strawberry Coconut Cupcakes-4

Coconut Frosted Strawberry Matcha Cupcakes

So as many of you have noticed from my irregular absences, junior year (most important year yay!) seems to have gone down a very black, very deep, very rough hole. Classes that were supposed to be fun (yay!) have turned into review sessions of honors classes with Barron’s AP book by the side. Well prepared…

Cynthia’s Pain d’Epices

December 27, 2016 | 9 comments

Is it just me or are recipes with names attached 200% more interesting than those without? Maybe it’s both. Maybe it’s because names usually mean stories and stories are always interesting. My recipes usually don’t have stories attached -maybe it’s time for a recipe with a story. I wish this recipe came with a very…

Back to School Bundt Cake-4

Back to School Sponge Cake with Greek Yogurt Glaze

August 18, 2016 | 8 comments

Well it’s school starting season again and you know what that means… – CAKE! Okay fine, it doesn’t actually mean cake, it means 6 2 inch books (try carrying that around and I wish I was joking or at least, exaggerating but no) and a boatload of homework on the first week plus teachers trying…

I had so much planned for this week but instead I decided to take a break from everything and go on vacation. It turns out that vacations are hard to come back from because now all I want to do is eat this oreo zebra cake without a glance or thought of my poor deserted…

Sesame Oil Pound Cake-3

Sesame Pound-ish Cake

February 21, 2016 | 6 comments

I dunno why everyone keeps reaping the greatness of olive oil. Not that olive oil isn’t great. It is. But sesame has always captured my heart more than olive oil ever will. The smell is intoxicating and it makes me dream of plump dumplings and thin noodles. So obviously I had to stick it into…

Red Bean + Black Sesame Madeleines-8

Black Sesame Madeleines + Red Bean Madeleines

February 7, 2016 | 4 comments

So it’s around this time of the year when the sky becomes grey with sadness, the grass dries yellow, and the geese flood the pond that homework, projects, and tests (but mostly projects) pile like a thick blanket, muffling all my dreams of going to bed before 12. Thus goes my sanity and my ability…

Nian Gao-10

Nian Gao -i.e. Sticky Cake, 年糕 {gluten free}

January 31, 2016 | 6 comments

Okay so sticky cake is only what I translate this as. It seems that whenever the chinese name foods cake, it’s not actually the stereotypical soft, fluffy, thickly frosted cakes that are so common in America. This particular cake is apologetically bouncy, squishy, and chewy. Nian gao is essentially a mix between mochi and a…
